little, too late. that's how it's being described, the $9 billion sandy relief. they want $60 billion. now, house speaker john boehner says there's going to be a vote on the remaining $51 billion. he says it's going to happen on january 15th but that's not good enough for representative pollone. he's out front tonight. let's deal with the build bill that had to deal with the flood insurance. 67 people voted no for including paul ryan. he said washington shouldn't be creating new debt and it would be irresponsible without making necessary reforms. debt ceiling may be an on muss sign of the future. what's your response to that? the national flood insurance is in crisis. >> the point is people paid their premiums and now they suffered and have damage and now paul ryan and others are saying they shouldn't -- the claims shouldn't be paid. i mean it's ridiculous. if you paid for any kind of insurance and you found out they weren't going to pay the claim, what would you think? i mean that's essentially what they're saying. >> in terms of the vote today and what happens next, charlie rangel,
the nation's biggest source of greenhouse gas pollution which is our power plants. hurricane sandy wasn't caused by climate change but made worse by climate change. the surge here in new york was higher because the oceans are higher. the winds of the hurricane were speedier because the oceans are warmer. so we've got to attack power plants and reduce the carbon pollution from them, which not only causes climate change but also things like asthma and cancer. we also have to attack fossil fuel subsidies, in my view, subsidies for the fossil fuel industry now outweigh renewal subsidies by 75-1. we've got to level the playing field so clean energy has a chance to compete. in the meantime, we've also got to increase r&d for clean energy and preserve the limited subsidies that we do have such as the production tax credit for wind power. i also predict that 2013 will be the year when we begin to finally modernize our electric grid which is incredibly antiquated. we saw again in hurricane sandy that a few places in new york city like co-op city, were able to become islands of power and keep the
